  • To access TikTok live, you must have at least 1,000 followers (although there is currently a hack—more about that later).

  • To start your own life, you must be 16 years old or older.

  • To send and receive presents during a LIVE, you must be at least 18 years old. During a live stream, gifts are basically virtual offers from your viewers that may be converted into cash.

How to use TikTok to go live

Step #1: To access the camera, first click the + at the bottom of your TikTok screen.
